Green New Deal: A WeListen Staff Discussion
RSVP here: http://bit.ly/WLOctober19
We will discuss the Green New Deal by learning about the policy itself while examining various perspectives on its content. We'll also consider the economic impact of the proposed policy, and discuss changes to the environment in the state of Michigan, and how the Green New Deal would potentially impact Michiganders.
Our aim is to bring liberals, conservatives, libertarians- everyone across the political spectrum- together for constructive conversation. The goal of WeListen discussions is not to debate or argue, but to understand the views and values of others and to learn from their perspectives. The session will begin with a brief content presentation to provide a basic understanding of the topic. No specific level of knowledge is required to participate in WeListen discussions.
By participating in WeListen sessions, staff members will:
- Expand understanding of a prominent political topic
- Practice discussing difficult topics with others,
- Gain openness to new ideas and perspectives,
- Learn to productively challenge an idea, and
- Form a sense of community among fellow staff members.

This event is supported by the WeListen Staff Series planning committee with members from the Ginsberg Center, the International Institute, LSA Psychology and UM Poverty Solutions.
